This hit the net last week, but it took a little while for us to go through our various channels to figure out what was going on (i.e. if only I had taken German in high school). CC-evangelist Cory Doctorow was recently interviewed on the German show Metropolis (a product of the German-French network Arte) in which they chat about his novel Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom (or Backup, as it is titled Germany) as well as “online freedom and surveillance, and science fiction”. The whole thing is CC licensed, so it is available for reuse if you so desire.
UPDATE: Cory’s second novel, Eastern Standard Tribe, has been published in German by Heyne (under the title Upload) with the text released under a CC BY-NC-SA license. Cory also recently did an interview about CC licensing and science fiction with the German net-show WatchBerlin.Posted 04 March 2008
